Default Bags for different conditions

As my disc collection grows, it seems that one could have different bags for different course conditions. For example, windy days, night (glow), winter (snow), water, etc

Does anyone have typical bag setups for any other specific course or weather conditions? And what type of discs do you put in them ( stability, weight, speed, etc)

I have a regular bag, a glow bag, and a snow bag (ribbons). Each has enough range of stabilities and speeds that I can disc up or down to handle different wind conditions, tweener distances, etc.

Part of that is selecting molds that are particularly versatile. I find weight preferences can be highly personal.

I have a snow bag and a regular bag. Living in Michigan my regular bag has the discs all the lucky people down south get to play with year round. I occasionally add a Hydra putter if I play a water course, that seems like the only decent floating disc I have come across. My snow bag has ribbons, molds with grippier plastic and lighter weights. I also have more understable molds in the snow bag. Hopefully the snow bag stays in the closet for a good 9 months now.

I have a below 40 degree winter/mud bag.
it's full of DX and G-Star. The stuff I can still grip when damp.

I don't have specific bags for courses. During the season, I carry a box of about 20 discs (besides my main bag) and I just swap discs in and out for the conditions and course.

I do a lot of swapping depending on the course and conditions. Mostly DX in the winter for the MN brutal cold, everything else is like grabbing an ice cube in -20. I also swap out by beat star destroyer for a DX valk, champ teebird to DX, ect. Typically throw lower speeds as it’s hard to grip when your hands are frozen lol. Mostly just hard to play in general, and honestly I think playing in the winter in places like this can be detrimental at times. No traction and cold/wet can lead to bad habits that are hard to break. Managing your bag to allow more standstill shots or forehand’s is a good plan in the snow or cold. Less chance of slipping, and your more stable on icy frozen ground.

I don’t have a totally different bag setup, but certain discs come in/out depending on conditions. When it’s really windy I drop a few understable discs and add a few overstable ones (especially a max D disc and a driving putter). For really rainy days I drop a couple champ discs for DX/pro ones. In winter I pretty much just throw the normal setup, but cut down on backups because it sucks to carry a heavy bag in the snow.

Great points all, thanks!

I'm playing with the idea of having a "modular" bag setups. That is, have a group of discs for windy days, have a group of discs for open distance, one for tight lines in woods, etc.

The cold bag certainly is a unique one that I won't be swapping around though.

My dedicated night golf bag is all day-glow yellow-green (most reactive color for a blacklight) with LEDs taped to them.
For windy days I need understable plastic (tailwinds) just as much as overstable, so it's the normal bag.
Thankfully, no winter bag is needed.

Although I must adapt to winter, I really try to just develop a bag I can bring anywhere and be successful at any point. Of course, if I am playing casually I will just load up the C grip to around 16 discs, but I take them from the core bag (B grip, 20 discs). Obviously, I may swap in disc X for disc Y occasionally, but not often.

I do, however, change my 'core' bag all the time.. seems like every time I feel i have a solid bag, I wanna try minimalism... and vice versa

cheers

I have done this more or less without intending too. Most of pink discs are the most overstable, while my blue discs are less stable, and my orange discs the least stable (for the most part). Almost all the discs are the same molds, but different weights, plastics, and amount of wear. I can switch in and out for different courses or seasons.

Right now, I am using the orange and blue combo, but during tournament season, I use the blue and pinks. Windy days, I can switch to all pinks, all orange is the mountain setup, while all blue is the summer fun rounds. Pink and orange hardly ever mix.
